This handbook provides information on the selection of tree species for agroforestry (AF) purposes. Subjects dealt with include: (1) the selection of multipurpose trees and their role in land-use systems; (2) diagnosis of land-use problems and designing AF technologies; (3) the ideal tree or "ideotype" for an AF system; (4) research planning and design, including the identification of suitable. (Editors: R. Gutteridge and M. Shelton, [republished ]), published by The Tropical Grassland Society of Australia, St Lucia, Queensland, Australia (previously published by CAB International, Wallingford, UK) covers a number of multipurpose tree legumes that can serve as ruminant forage in silvopastoral agroforestry systems.
Though tree seed science is regularly taught to foresters in forestry colleges, involvement in frontline extension by those trained officers is quite limited. Graduates of agricultural colleges, on the other hand, form the bulk of government employees and NGOs involved in frontline extension. This review was carried out to establish the extent to which agricultural programmes at colleges go. Purchase Multifunctional Agriculture - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBN ,

Multipurpose trees or multifunctional trees are trees that are deliberately grown and managed for more than one output. They may supply food in the form of fruit, nuts, or leaves that can be used as a vegetable; while at the same time supplying firewood, add nitrogen to the soil, or supply some other combination of multiple outputs."Multipurpose tree" is a term common to agroforestry.

Several species are typical components of homegardens. These species are mainly unimproved landraces. Tree improvement is a slow process because of the long time to flowering and fruiting.

The conference "Combating Desertification with Plants" was held in Beer Sheva, Israel, from November, and was attended by 70 participants from 30 countries and/or international organisations. Desertification - the degradation of soils in drylands - is a phenomenon occurring in scores of countries around the globe.

Mahua is a multipurpose tree mostly grown on wastelands in the north and central parts of the country where, generally, tropical and subtropical climates prevail (Chateerjee and Parakashi, ).
It grows well on a wide variety of soils including alluvial soil in. to meet this deficit, and could result in increased demand for tree germplasm. The commonly planted species for commercial forestry in the region are pines, eucalypts and wattle.
species were obtained in from the program of multipurpose tree germplasm (Burley, 1 ) initiated bye the Oxford Fo restry Institute, UK. The native species seeds were collected fro m the.

Germplasm of the calabash tree (Crescentia cujete L.) was collected in five major regions of Colombia, i.e. the Andes, Caribbean, Amazon, Orinoco, and Pacific regions.
Collecting this multipurpose tree was guided by the indigenous knowledge of farmers and artisans in each region. Large variation in fruit shapes and sizes was found, of which some forms were typical for certain. Germplasm consists of landraces, modern cultivars, obsolete cultivars, breeding stocks, wild forms and wild species of cultivated crops.
Germplasm includes both cultivated and wild species and relatives of crop plants. Germplasm is collected from centres of diversity, gene banks, gene sanctuaries, farmer’s fields, markers and seed companies. The effect of five multipurpose trees (MPTs), Acacia angustissima, Acacia saligna, Chamaecytisus palmensis, Leucaena pallida and Sesbania sesban on ciliate protozoa was investigated in rumen cannulated Ethiopian sheep.
Both entodiniomorphs and holotrichs were counted. The protozoa counts from S. sesban supplemented diet were significantly (P. Barnes R.D. and Simons A.J. Selection and breeding to con-serve and utilize tropical tree germplasm.

Some of these aspects, alongwith achievements made by the national programme at NBPGR on exploration and germplasm collection, are reflected in Chapter 14 of this book. Collecting is limited by the constraints, such as time available, physical capacity and competence of the collectors apart from other local factors.
Biotechnology requires germplasm, as both raw material and a source of natural variation. As a way of shaping and using genetic information, biotechnology has implication for germplasm conservation and use.
